Succeeding as a First-Time Parent (HBR Working Parents Series) Kindle Edition
Navigate work successfully as a first-time parent.
Just when you're starting to figure out parenting, all of a sudden your leave time is over. You're excited to go back, but you already miss your baby like crazy, and you don't know how you're going to get through the first meeting without dozing off, let alone actually do your job.
Succeeding as a First-Time Parent will help you take a deep breath and get through it. Your first year as a working parent will be hard, but it can be truly affirming. You'll find you have energy stores, resources, and supporters that you didn't know existed and that you can make strides forward at work when you're a new mother or father.
You'll learn to:
- Understand all your options for childcare
- Hit the ground running when you return from leave
- Stay on the career track you want to be on
- Carry on amid inevitable exhaustion and emotional upheaval
- Set your family up for success, however you measure it
The HBR Working Parents Series with Daisy Dowling, Series Editor, supports readers as you anticipate challenges, learn how to advocate for yourself more effectively, juggle your impossible schedule, and find fulfillment at home and at work. Whether you're up with a newborn or planning the future with your teen, you'll find the practical tips, strategies, and research you need to make working parenthood work for you.
